This Mercedes SLS AMG EV Is Just 1 of 9 Made - Here’s What You Need to Know
Its full name was the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Coupe Electric Drive, and it was supposed to mark a new era for Mercedes-Benz, one that brought to market emission-free super sports cars with technology borrowed from Formula 1. Unfortunately, the all-electric SLS didn’t quite kick it for the carmaker, who would need almost a decade more to unveil the EQC, its first all-electric road car. Which happened to be an SUV, not a sports car.
Here’s all you need to know about the SLS AMG EV.

Be A Part Of Cocaine History With Pablo Escobar’s 1974 Porsche 911 RSR
A rare and provenance-heavy 1974 Porsche 911 RSR is now up for grabs at DuPont Registry for the tidy sum of $2.2 million. The specific 911 RSR is the IROC edition. It was built to race at the 1974 International Race of Champions (IROC), and only 15 examples were made, 12 of which were for drivers and three that served as spare units. This particular model went to Brazilian racing legend Emerson Fittipaldi, hence its nickname “the Fittipaldi Car.” Other prominent individuals have owned this car throughout its life, including John Tunstall, Roger Penske, and, most notably, drug lord Pablo Escobar.
The Schuppan Porsche 962CR Is Made Out Of Pure Dream Fabric
Four. That’s how many members the Schuppan Porsche 962 CR Owners’ Club would number if anyone bothered to set it up. By contrast, head counting at the equally fictitious Ferrari 250 GTO Owners’ Club would yield over 30 members. As things stand, then, the 962CR is quite enticing given that few road-legal cars are faster than this bubbly-eyed creation and fewer still are rarer. So why aren’t you buying it already? Well, the answer doesn’t only tie itself to the existence of multiple Swiss bank accounts...
Ken Block’s 2002 Subaru WRX STi Is For Sale, And You Know You Want It
Remember The Good Old Days with This Lotus Elise S1
The Lotus Elise represents everything that’s great about a sports car. It’s light, tiny, and it allows you to have fun way before you reach impoundable speeds. Sadly, the ultra-light, two-door delight is on its way out and that means only one thing: special editions such as this ’Type 49’ model built some 21 years ago will only become more desirable and more expensive in future years. Want one? Get one and do so faster than that 6.1-second 0-60 mph time.
This 2017 Audi R8 Widebody Has $100,000 In Upgrades, Low Mileage, And It Could Be Yours
The second-generation Audi R8 is already six years old as of 2021, but it’s still a cool and powerful sports car. But if you’re among enthusiasts who view the Audi as a softer version of the Lamborghini Huracan, this widebody and supercharged R8 might change your mind. It has $100,000 in upgrades yet it’s notably more affordable than a Huracan.
This Rare 1995 Lancia Delta HF Integrale Evoluzione II Could Be Yours
Since 2017, Lancia has been selling just one car, the Ypsilon, in Italy. The iconic brand is pretty much dead outside its home country and its future remains uncertain. But even though Lancia has been struggling in recent years, its heritage is still remembered thanks to nameplates like the Delta.
Famous for its rallying success and its high-performance Integrale street versions, the Delta is arguably the most legendary vehicle Lancia has built in since the 1980s. And now you can own an incredible and rare Delta HF Integrale Evo II version for just $100,000.
Car for Sale: 1988 BMW E30 M3
BMW M3 needs no introduction. The new model with the kidney grille has faced a lot of flak, but that’s because the yesteryear models had set the bar so high. One such M3 from the 1980s has arrived at the Bring-a-Trailer auctions and it looks absolutely droolworthy. This ’88 belongs to the first-gen of the M3s ever produced by BMW. This particular example comes with a four-cylinder engine, a manual gearbox, and has over 80,000 miles on the odo.
Classic Car For Sale: 1973 BMW 3.0 CS
The old Bimmers have a charm that the new ones just cannot match. An E9 from the 70s has arrived at Bring-a-Trailer and it certainly looks like one to collect. The German automaker built the E9 from 1968 to 1975. Apart from its classic, stellar looks, the car was also a performance beast back in those days. BMW even built a homologation of this series in the form of the 3.0 CSL model, which was quite successful as a racing car, especially in the European Touring Car Championship and the Deutsche Rennsport Meisterschaft.
The car that the auction site has here is a 3.0 CS, which is the tamed version of the 3.0 CSL, but comes with equipment from the latter. Although it spent most of its years in the U.S., it is now up for sale in Canada. Interested?
Those Who Purchased a Ford GT Two Years Ago Are now Cashing in Hand Over Fist
When Ford imposed a two-year resale ban on Ford GTs, it put a lot of people in precarious positions, specifically those who lucked into purchasing a GT with the intent to flip them afterward. Fortunately, two years isn’t a long time these days, and those who purchased their Ford GTs in 2018 are now able to reap the rewards from all the waiting.
A 2018 Ford GT is up for auction on the Bring A Trailer site, and with eight days still remaining in the auction, the GT is now close to doubling the amount the original owner paid for the supercar in 2018. If bidding continues at its current pace, there’s a reasonable chance that this 2018 Ford GT could fetch seven figures. That’s not a bad return on investment, is it?
Super Rare Car for Sale: No. 1 1993 Cizeta V16T - Owned By Sultan of Brunei
Most of the supercars you see come up for sale in the used market are generally rare and have very few miles on the odo. They sell for a fat amount almost always. Other than the condition and desirability of the vehicle, there is another factor associated with it – history.
For instance, have you heard of the brand Cizeta? It isn’t as famous as your Shelby or Aston Martin, but it is still commanding a lot of attention lately because one of its rare models was owned by none other than the car czar, the Sultan of Brunei, and it’s up for sale now!
Amazing Car for Sale: 1964 Aston Martin DB5
If you are a James Bond fan, you would’ve seen this car many times in the movies. In fact, it even made an appearance in Skyfall. The one that was driven by Sean Connery in the movies was in fact sold for $4.6 million in 2010. That’s the kind of fanfare this car has ever since. But, that doesn’t mean the car had no role to play.
The 1964 Aston Martin DB5 was powered by a six-cylinder engine and was in production for just two years. Off the 900 examples built in that period, one of them has arrived at Bring-a-Trailer’s auction and has bids near the half-a-million mark. Care to take part?
Amazing Car for Sale: 2007 Saleen S7 LM
Saleen has built some high-performance cars since its inception, but the most prominent one is the S7. This mid-engined, hand-built sports car stayed in production for about a decade. The S7 was powered by an all-aluminum V-8 engine that produced 550 horses in its first run until 2005 and was then updated to make 750 ponies in the later model years.
The S7 was a high-profile car and you don’t see many on the road or up for sale very often. However, one example from 2007 has arrived at Bring-a-Trailer and it is already commanding a price of over half-a-million bucks!
An Ex-Sebring 12-Hour Jaguar D-Type Is for Sale, But You May Need to Sell a Kidney to afford It
Has there ever been a more famous sports car than the Jaguar D-Type? Following in the footsteps of the C-Type, Jaguar’s first purpose-built racer, the D-Type defined an entire era of sports car racing and did so with a combination of charm and power that has arguably never been matched.
From its howling inline-six engine, its emblematic curves culminating with that tail-fin, to the myriad of race wins it achieved throughout the ’50s, the D-Type stands tall across the ages as perhaps the embodiment of Jaguar’s finest hour. And you can now own an example made during the original production run some 64 years ago.
Cool Car For Sale: 2018 Ford GT
The mid-engined Ford GT first debuted back in 2004 and was in production for a couple of years. Based on the credibility of the GT40, which recorded four consecutive 24 Hours of Le Mans wins from 1966 to 1969, this moniker is significant in the company’s history.
In 2015, Ford announced that the GT was being brought back after a decade-long exile. The car is selling like hotcakes and a number of special editions are already launched, but there’s no denying that the GT is still quite an exclusive car. However, one example recently arrived on Bring-a-Trailer and has caught our attention.
Amazing Car for Sale: 1966 Ferrari 330 GTC
Ferrari has numerous models from the mid-20th century that are worth dying for. One of them is the Ferrari 330 series that the automaker produced from 1963 to 1968. First came the 330 America, then the 330 GT 2+2 that replaced it within a year and 50 examples later, and finally came with 330 GTC and 330 GTS models in 1966. The body style of the 330 GTC was designed by Pininfarina and it looked more like its predecessor, the 275 GTB, than the 330 GT 2+2.
This tasteful model is one of the approximately 600 built examples, and it recently arrived at the Bring-a-Trailer auctions. The auction is live for one more week, and at the time of writing this article, it already has a bid of half-a-million dollars.
Cool Car For Sale: LS3-Powered 1970 Chevrolet K5 Blazer
The Chevrolet K5 Blazer was introduced in 1969 as a full-size SUV. The K5 was originally a short wheelbase truck, and the Blazer was based on it to take on the Ford Bronco and the Jeep CJ Series, in extension. The K5 Blazer was on the market for over 25 years before it was replaced by the Chevy Tahoe in 1995. But, the SUV still looks as timeless and handsome as it did back then.
Recently, a first-gen 1970 K5 Blazer arrived at Bring-a-Trailer. This particular example comes with a whole lot of changes, including plastic surgery and a heart transplant as part of a major refurbishment that took place four years ago. So, would it be fair to call it a modern-day K5 Blazer?
Cool Car For Sale: 1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Berlinetta
Although commonly known as the Daytona, this two-seater GT from Ferrari is known as the 365 GTB/4 officially. It came as a successor to the 275 GTB/4 and was introduced at the Paris Auto Show in 1968. The Daytona moniker, interestingly, was given by the media to commemorate the Prancing Horse’s top-three finish in February 1967. Anyway, a ‘Daytona’ example from the early 70s is listed on Bring-a-Trailer’s website, and it is drawing a lot of attention. This model is one of the 1,284 Berinetta coupes built for the U.S.-market between 1968 and 1973. The bid for the car is nearing half-a-million dollars already at the time of writing this article, which shows what a collectible it is. Interested?
The Ferrari 612 Scaglietti Shooting Brake Is The Most Practical Prancing Horse Ever
Ferrari’s current lineup is largely made up of poised mid-engined supercars although, if you’re a lover of the grand tourer, there’s always the 812 Superfast and also the GTC4Lusso for those needing a GT that can actually seat four adults.
With the Purosangue SUV coming as both Ferrari’s first four-door offering and the first high-riding model to feature the Prancing Horse on its bodywork, Ferrari will soon have the issue of practicality covered in its entirety. Until then, however, have a look at this $244,000 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti Shooting Brake. It’s unique and it’s cheaper than a GTC4Lusso, making us sad Ferrari has never braved the waters to mass-produce a 612 Scaglietti Shooting Brake model.
Amazing Car for Sale: 2005 Ford GT
The Ford GT needs to introduction. This car won four consecutive Le Mans races in the late 1960s. The supercar has a long history, and all its credibility was shifted to the street-legal performance car from the automaker at the turn of the century. At the 2002 North American International Auto Show, the company unveiled the GT40 Concept and the first-gen production year cars rolled out a couple of years later.
Ford sold a little over 2,000 examples in the car’s first year on sale in 2005, and one of those examples is now up for sale at a Bring-a-Trailer auction. This 2005 GT, in the classic Red shade, has just over 1,100 clicks on the odometer, and is definitely one to collect, provided you have around a quarter-million bucks to spare. Bid away?
